    You were correct. That is exactly what happened. A rack was jamming into the door and prevented it from opening. I removed the door and was able to fix the shelf. Thanks!

This is a new one that I have never heard of. As the door is held shut by a magnet and not a latch we can assume something inside the refrigerator door has fell over and is hung in the rack. Try rocking it back and forth with the help of a couple of strong men. You may have to move the unit out away from the wall and with the help of other people, unplug the unit, and lean it back on the rear very, very, slowly. This should cause whatever is holding the door shut to fall to the rear and allow you to open the door. You may have to lay it on it's side if this does not work. Do not plug the unit back in for 8 hours after laying it down.

You can most likely remove the door by removing the hinges on the top and bottom.

Please post the model number of your Whirlpool refrigerator for more specific directions.

I hope that helps.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool the refrigerator door will not stay close.

It shouldn't be pushing the door itself...you see the magnet that is used in the refrigerators are not repulsive.It doesn't get weaken that easily but what you can do is check if there isn't something bulging out of the fridge and pushing the door...take out all the things from inside and then try closing the door again. If door opens up again then definitely you have to look for a new gasket.

Somehow the freezer door became locked and I can't figure out how to unlock it.


There is no lock on your refrigerator for either door. The lock/unlock button is only for the dispenser to keep small children from dispensing ice or water. If your door won't open it could be a few things. First, a package on one of the shelves dropped and is jamming the door on the inside. May require removal of the top hinge so you can tilt the door top forward and look inside to see what happened. Next, you may have one of the door hinges that actually broke and is keeping the door from opening. You will need to look close at both hinges but I would guess the bottom hinge would cause this more that the top since the door weight is all on the bottom hinge. The only thing that holds the doors closed is a magnetic gasket on most side by side models under normal conditions.

The top compartment in the refrigerator is cooling effectively. But the lower compartment in the same refrigerator is not at all getting cool. Why is this so?


your damper vent door from the freezer to the refrigerator compartments is either stuck or frozen shut from moisture,sometimes they break and jam too,if this door doesnt open and close your food will get too warm or cold the door needs to move to keep the temperature correct

Kenmore refrigerator-model#106.74254400 freezer is working fine, refrig. will not get cold. Any ideas?


the damper vent door between the 2 compartments is not opening to let cold air in from freezer to refrige,also make sure fan is also running to push cold air through this door,a lot of times its either frozen shut from moisture or the door shaft breaks and it jams shut or the damper door motor goes bad,its a 106.xxxxxxxx model so whirlpool produced it for kenmore

Ice maker frosts over on the chute


This would indicate a problem with the ice chute door seal. Have it serviced. Air leakage would cause the frost-ice buildup.
